TRAILER

The West and the Ruthless

In the dusty streets of Crow's Landing, outlaws, wealthy plantation owners, runaway slaves, a half Cherokee girl, a pair of brothel owners and a woman days away from giving birth all end up in a bloody shoot out and running for their lives.

 

SWAGGERING ONTO THE SCREEN WITH CONFIDENCE AND BRAVADO, THE WEST AND THE RUTHLESS WILL KEEP YOU GUESSING AS IT BOILS OVER TO ITS THRILLING CONCLUSION. GRABBING YOU BY THE FACE AND NEVER LETTING GO, RUTHLESS PACKS MORE GRIT THAN A PRIZE FIGHTER, AND PROMISES A SHOWDOWN THAT WILL LEAVE YOU BREATHLESS."
